Itinerary


9:30
Meet your group guide in Bordeaux, departure for a fun wine tour in the famous Saint Emilion area!
On the way to your first visit your guide will give you an explanation about the Bordeaux wines characteristics and Classification. Learn how soil and climate as well as the type of grapes can influence the flavor of the wine.
   

10:30
Start your visit with an escape game in the underground of a Château! 
In the Fronsac appellation, at the confluence of the Isle & Dordogne rivers, at the top of the limestone plateau, this impressive Chateau overlooks the Dordogne valley and offers you a stunning view over the river and its 160 acres of vines. 
Use elements of the cellar to solve a series of puzzles and find clues to make your way out among their 20 acres of underground cellars, where more than 700 000 bottles of wines are ageing… you have 45 minutes…tic tac
   

12:30 After burning your brain cells, you well deserve to taste the wines of the Château (and even if you haven’t found the way out).Time for a convivial lunch in a typical brasserie of the region that offers a lovely view on the river and served local food.
   

1:30 After lunch, hop on in your minivan with the group and depart to your next visit, a Charming Château in the Pomerol appellation, A perfect example of the Sixteenth century Bordeaux wine architecture with a singular family history. After the visit you will taste the wines of the property.
   

2:00 Visit and tasting in a Chateau in the Pomerol appellation. Leave your preconceptions about Merlot at the door. You will be surprised at the difference the Bordeaux terroir makes. This is definitely not California.
   

3:30 Travel through time with a guided visit of the medieval village of Saint Emilion followed by some free time in this UNESCO World Heritage town to explore on your own and do some shopping.
   

4:30 Join your group and guide at the Couvent des Cordeliers and clink cremant glasses together (sparkling wine of the region) to this cheerful and instructive day.
   

  Climb back into the minivan and relax on the way back to Bordeaux.
